    VLC on budget win 8.1 tablet


    Has anyone else had problems with VLC media player on one of the new Baytrail powered windows 8.1 tablets? My Linx 10 won't play anything without the sound breaking about once a second. Other players are slightly more successful, but for various reasons i really need VLC.

    I have a Winbook TW802 and VLC works just fine on it. It is a baytrail as well.

    Thanks Andy

    I eventually did a factory restore, and its now working again.

    It also solved a problem I had with Airplay breaking up in a similar way as well.

    Interested to hear thoughts on what happened here, not practical to restore it every time something goes wrong.
